Sutton Parks Constabulary

Sutton Parks Constabulary was a small, specialised constabulary responsible for policing the parks and open spaces of the London Borough of Sutton. In 2007 the Constabulary was disbanded and responsibility passed to two "Safer Parks Teams" provided by the Metropolitan Police.

Members of the constabulary were sworn as constables under section 18, Ministry of Housing and Local Government Provision Order Confirmation (Greater London Parks and Open Spaces) Act 1967. Such constables have the powers of a constable to deal with by-laws relating to parks and open spaces under their control.

Due to its small size, policing was also carried out in the parks of the borough by the Metropolitan Police Service. It should also be noted that any serious or major incidents or crimes would automatically become the responsibility of the Metropolitan Police Service.
